8 Things to Co-Create this Labor Day Weekend After You Score Your Core77 Conference Ticket

You know what Labor Day means—back to school, back to work…and finally buying that much-coveted Core77 Conference ticket, of course! In honor of our conference’s co-creation theme, here’s a list of activities to help promote some good ol’ American group bonding this Labor Day Weekend. Back away from that flat screen TV and get co-creating!

8. Go-Karts are so 2002—Build your own Cooler-Scooter and host a Cooler Scooter Race. It doesn’t get more American than this. Pro-tip: carry booze to your destination inside of your scooter, but avoid drinking and scooting.

7. Channel the energy and teamwork of this Pyrotechnics group. It’s time to make up for your 4th of July fireworks fail—no dogs allowed this time.

6. Pimp your boat, together. Here’s some inspiration.

5. How to get people to go fishing with you on said boat: make this primitive fish spear and allow people to watch you attempt to use it…entertainment guaranteed.

4. Assemble the Avengers to build Captain America’s shield from titanium. The kids will love this appropriate family activity.

3. During an intense sand castle competition, surprise your competitors with an abstract sand sculpture instead of a typical castle. Your design will look so artistic, no-one will know you free-formed the entire design process. 

2. Kindle your camping fire with Doritos and use the leftovers for walking tacos. The fact that these “cheesy” chips can start fires is alarming, but they still taste darn good with taco meat.

1. Set up an epic walking taco bar on this massive farmhouse table or collaborate on delicious eats at a backyard communal BBQ party

When co-creating with family and friends, remember that things can get a little heated. During competitions and group bonding activities, remind yourselves to enjoy the holiday weekend and the time you’re spending together.

Learn more about co-creation at this September’s Core77 Conference in LA. Buy your ticket today!

The Day After Tomorrow: Eerie Concept Art Depicts Earth After The Apocalypse

1

I like to introduce you to the dark visions of Noro8 aka Norbert. He is an artist from the UK who specialises in digital art and photo manipulation, with a very special interest in post-apocalyptic wastelands. Noro8 loves designing images that focus on end-of-human-civilization scenarios with dark sci-fi elements strewn copiously. He believes society is broken and selfish and utterly brainwashed and envisage a morose future where survival is a nightmarish hell. In that sense, Nero8 serves as a kind of harbinger. His art conveys visions from his mind’s eye and they are dark and gritty and devoid of hope.

What Life Is Like Before And After You Get A Dog

1

If you decide to get a dog or any other animal as a pet, experienced owners have something to tell you. The owner of a golden retriever, John, shows how his life has changed after getting his pup Maimai — whom he describes as ’’a cute little furry devil’’.

As pup’s owner explains, everyone who has a dog soon starts feeling guilty that they don’t share their food or buy new toys for it. And you can forget about having a tidy apartment — ever again. But it’s all worth it. Because there’s no one else who’s happier than the person who sees their dog greeting them every evening in the hallway.

Timeless New York Street Scenes Photographs In The 1950s, Found In A Home’s Attic After Nearly 50 Years

0

These vintage photographs capture a timeless energy and diversity that is characteristic of the sleepless streets of New York City. The recently discovered antique portraits showcase the city in the midst of the 1950’s, as seen through the Rolleiflex lens of the undiscovered photographer Frank Larson. While digging through his aunt’s attic, where Larson stowed away his images in 1964, the photographer’s grandson found this remarkable collection of street scenes that give a candid glimpse into the history of the big city.

In the 1950’s, Larson worked as an auditor in Queens and had a great knack for capturing beautiful moments in everyday life. Known as the “family shutterbug,” photography was a creative outlet that provided relief from the stresses of his 9 to 5 banking job. On the weekends, he would leave home early in the morning on expeditions to explore the city and photograph the life he saw, from Chinatown to Central Park. Throughout his lifetime, his talent was hardly recognized other than at a few local amateur competitions. After Larson passed away, due to a stroke, his images laid dormant, lost for nearly 50 years. Now having resurfaced, Larson’s extensive collection of thousands of black and white pieces are in the care of the Queens Museum of Art and are receiving the recognition they deserve.

Three young ladies prepare to have their pictures taken in Manhattan photo booths in April 1954.
